Asian Minced Beef and Noodles

6 Nov

This is a lovely Asian dish, it is really quick to put together and uses mostly store cupboard ingredients. It is packed with flavor and goes perfectly with steamed vegetables. It is a great midweek supper and you could easily add a few vegetables to the beef such as pepper, baby corn or mushrooms. Also I am so sorry for the terrible quality of the photos. They days are getting dark before I have dinner so I have to photograph my pictures in the dark and they don’t come out very well. The dish looks a hundred times better in real life! I hope you’ll try it and see for yourself. Again so sorry!
